Transforming Manual Adverse Media Screening into Automated Investigations
AI Automates the Adverse Media Investigation Process
Adverse media screening has historically been a highly manual process of finding, organizing, and reading articles. With Merlon, natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI) automate repetitive manual tasks, reducing compliance cost and institutional risk.
- Separate relevant and irrelevant articles
- Understand article context
- Determine subject’s involvement
- Align relevant risks with FATF Predicate Offenses, USA Bank Secrecy Act, and 6th EU Money Laundering Directive
Analysts Review Investigation Findings and Evidence Instead of Articles
Findings include extracted personal or business details, risk information, and article snippets to enable efficient remediation. Analysts can quickly drill into underlying articles for additional details if needed.
This approach revolutionizes adverse media remediation.
